Upgrading NVidia GeForce 7300GT
I am getting ready to upgrade video card on my Mac Pro Desktop.
2007 Dual Core 2x2.66 GHz Memory 12 GB MAC OS X Ver 10.6.8
Current Video card is: 2 Video cards NVidia GEForce 7300 GT
I was told to either upgrade to (2) video cards: NVidia 8800 GT X2
Or (1) video card ATI Radeon X1900 XT
What would your recommend?
I mostly use PS5, LR4, Final Cut Pro 10
The 7300 card does not let me get updates to Final Cut Pro 10

X1900 is obsolete now like the 7300GT
Intel: 2007 Mac Pro 2.66, Early 2008 MacBook Pro 2.4
PowerPC: 2001 Titanium PowerBook, 2001 iBook G3 500, 1999 B&W G3 400
ARM: iPad 4, iPhone 5
PC: Z97m-D3H: Intel G3220 3GHz: ATI6870 1GB: 8GB RAM

Thank you for your suggestion. As you probably notice, not too computer savy. That helps so much. I did not think the ATI 1900 was the way to go, just because it was old. Do I need to flash the Apple ATI 4870? Or is just plug & play?

Check my FAQ thread as well.
You could try a modern NVIDIA card, like a GTX 560. This should work out-of-the-box on your system. I'd keep the original 7300 GT card in case you ever need a boot screen, just as a backup.
Edit: Oh wait, you're on 10.6.8, the NVIDIA cards would require 10.7.5 to work.
